Bug Description

running virtualbox, each virtual machine has an individual icon that can be seen in Alt-Tab window switcher.

this may be recognized by bamf, and shown as individual launchers in unity.

those windows are part of virtualbox so are shown as such. Its working as intended. I am tempted to mark this bug as invalid.

virtualbox allows creating shortcuts (.desktop files) for virtual machines, so I think these should be treated separately.

On Oneiric, a few things have changed within Virtualbox, causing bamf's recognition behaviour to change.

The core interface still works fine, however each virtual machine window gets its own icon on the launcher. Unfortunately they are not recognized as anything, meaning that they get the grey question mark icon, and no title text.

Given that this bug seems to be design-related, would it be better to file this issue as a separate regression bug?
